MorphOS: Web browser Wayfarer 2.0
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek's web browser Wayfarer is now available in version 2.0. Reason for the version leap is change of the browser's core: Now Wayfarer is based on the latest stable implementation of WebKitGTK (2.32.1), which is about one year newer than the one Wayfarer 1.x used, proving this project's sustainability.

Most visible feature introduced by this is support of the so-called "dark mode" offered by some websites (example video). Furthermore some bugs have been fixed - in the past, checkmarks were not rendered at some websites for example. Please note that the ICU files included in the archive must be moved to MOSSYS: in order to run latest Wayfarer.

Changes in detail:
  • Rebased to latest stable WebKitGTK (2.32.1)
  • Implemented Dark Mode
  • Fixed a crash in HLS video playback
  • Worked around an issue preventing sites from loading, etc after quit confirmation requester got cancelled
  • Fixed webkit message log functionality that crashed if the resulting message contained formatting sequences
  • Changed rendering of elements like checkmarks that were missing on some websites
  • Out-of-RAM crashes no longer bring up the Send Bugreport messagebox
Required are MorphOS 3.15 and 1 GB of RAM. A CPU with at least 1.5 GHz is recommended. For feedback to the author, besides the integrated crash report tool also e-mails to wayfarer at wayfarer.icu or the corresponding thread at MorphZone can be used. (snx)
